bareMinerals creator Leslie Blodgett and iconic potter, designer, author, and personality Jonathan Adler on their limited-edition collaboration.
bareMinerals creator Leslie Blodgett has always been a fan of Jonathan Adler’s stylish, chic designs. “I decorated our nationwide tour bus with Jonathan Adler” she reports. When her team called Jonathan Adler HQ, Leslie’s enthusiasm was met by his staff. “I heard an ear-piecing squeal from all the girls in the office—they are such fans of the brand!” says Adler. And he “respond[s] to the message of the company and to Leslie’s vision—she’s chic and authentique!”
This month, bareMinerals Deluxe Original Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 goes bold, emblazoned with Adler’s cheerful chevron print and presented in a signature box with a Handy Buki Brush. Since it was designed to inspire happiness, we asked Adler and Blodgett what makes them smile.
JONATHAN ADLER’S HAPPY LIST
MY HAPPIEST PLACE: In my pottery studio, covered in clay.
MY HAPPIEST MOMENT: The day I met my hubbie Simon. Cheesy but true.
MY HAPPIEST COFFEE ORDER: Is tea. Specifically, PG Tips Tea. Those Brits understand that tea should be ultra-potent.
MY HAPPIEST GIFT: I think the best gift I ever got was the potter’s wheel my parents got me for my Bar Mitzvah. Definitely not the sets of pens I got (no 13-year-old boy wants a pen!).
MY HAPPIEST COCKTAIL: Sparkling water—I’m a teetotaler.
MY HAPPIEST MEAL: Roast chicken and apple pie. I like my food simple.
MY HAPPIEST COLOR: Orange. It is the color of happiness.
MY HAPPIEST ANIMAL: Owls. They’re magical creatures, perfectly designed by Mother Nature.
MY HAPPIEST OUTFIT: White jeans and a polo shirt. I’ve been rocking that look ever since my Bar Mitzvah and it never seems to go out of style.
MY HAPPIEST FAMILY MEMBER: My Norwich terrier Liberace doesn’t seem to have many worries.
